A page dedicated to the movie called "Jesus of Nazareth" by Franco Zeffirelli, who had a divine inspiration to make such a beautiful film. The most important decision of all by Zeffirelli was to give the part of Jesus to the British actor Robert Powell. He was and still is the most magnificent Christ in the history of cinema depicting Jesus public ministry, Passion crucification death and resurrection.  The sets, the costumes and the actors where brilliant. In the film you can see an all star cast; Olivia Hussey as Mary, Anthony Quinn to Peter Ustinov, from James Mason to Lawrence Olivier, from Christopher Plummer to Rod Steiger, from Anne Bancroft to Ernest Borgnine, Stacy Keach. Micheal York as John the Baptist. Passion of Christ,  Jesus on the cross, "Eli, Eli, la'ma sabach-tha'ni?" that is, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed, "Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit!, It is finished

Jesus of Nazareth on Cross
My God, I love Thee; not because
I hope for heaven thereby,
Nor yet because who love Thee not
May eternally die.

Thou, O my Jesus, Thou didst me
Upon the cross embrace;
For me didst bear the nails and spear,
And manifold disgrace.

And griefs and torments numberless,
And sweat of agony;
E’en death itself; and all for man
Who was Thine enemy.

Then why, O blessèd Jesus Christ
Should I not love Thee well?
Not for the hope of winning heaven,
Nor of escaping hell.

Not with the hope of gaining aught,
Nor seeking a reward,
But as Thyself hast lovèd me,
O everlasting Lord!

E’en so I love Thee, and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing,
Solely because Thou art my God,
And my eternal King.

nicodemus.mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is dumb.

4: Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by Jesus of NazarethGod, and afflicted.

A bowl full of vinegar stood there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on
hyssop and held it to his mouth.

"It is finished";
and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

and
each time you pick up your cross
you are uniting yourself to Me."
